Good morning everyone!
Well, I finally did it. I went through the amazing box of goodies I received from the new 2017/2018 Annual Catalog. I am in love with so much!
You will get your catalogs next month, and can order starting June 1st. But in the meantime, want to check out a few sneak peeks??
My basket of happiness! I typically keep new product in these great metal baskets (from a big box craft store) until I use the items, then they get put away. This is all stuff from the new catalog! I will be busy for a while!
Lets start with the Delightful Daisy Suite
I LOVE this bundle! The samples shown at OnStage were amazing. I can’t wait to start playing.
The cardstock pack (in Calypso Coral, Old Olive, & Pool Party) as well as the beautiful new DSP. This suite ranges from soft and delicate, to bold and in your face, something for everyone!
How fun is this? 1/4″ double stitched ribbon in Daffodil Delight.
LOVE! Faceted Gems in gold and silver. Trust me, in person these are beautiful!
Wood Textures Suite
The stamp set is fun and totally on trend. But what really gets me?? See that funny looking long die on the right hand side? That makes an adorable little box!!! Teamed up with the DSP, you can create some amazing little crates!! They are perfectly sized to hold 3×3 note cards.
Check out the DSP! Photorealistic, all sorts of amazing wood patterns! This is one of the items that got the most squeals at OnStage!
Lets talk about the trim for a minute. It is beautiful! 1/4″ copper trim that is so soft and smooth. But to change up the look, just stretch out the fibers a bit as I did in the photo on the right. Gives a more rustic feel doesn’t it? One of the girls I sat with at OnStage compared it to a fishing net. What a fun idea!
Color Theory Suite
Wow… all I have to say. This stamp set is wonderful, with SO many stamps that can be used throughout the year. Spring, Summer, Fall, & Winter are all represented her. And the coordinating thinlits? Jaw dropping. Check out that Adirondack chair!! The snowflakes are so incredibly detailed. And cherry blossoms? Yes please!!!!!!
The DSP is so much fun. So many different designs are included… paint chip style, ombre, peeling paint, and more! The coordinating cardstock pack includes Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, and Old Olive. I always make sure to purchase the cardstock packs when I purchase the DSP. It is the perfect way to make sure that I have exactly what I need when creating a project.
Mini Chevron Ribbon in Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry. I love that we have so many new ribbon and trim options in the new catalog, these included!!
Glitter Enamel Dots. I had to take a closeup for you all to see just how beautiful these are. Go ahead, click on the photo on the right to enlarge. I will wait! They are SO pretty! I love love love the ombre! These are going to be so much fun to use! Like the faceted gems, photos don’t do these justice.
Eastern Palace Suite
I needed to include two photos, so you can see all of the thinlits that come in this bundle! 14 beautiful, intricate, detailed thinlits. Coordinating with the stamp set, these are stunners!
The beautiful DSP was inspired by peacocks. How lovely! The coordinating cardstock pack includes Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig, and Tranquil Tide.
Fun new mini tassels! These are so pretty, and the perfect little something something to add to a project to finish it off. I know not everyone is a fan, but Lord knows that I am!
People!!! We now have Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock and coordinating envelopes! The powers that be at Stampin’ Up heard our requests! The best part??? You can get these FREE in May!! Check out the flyer below…
Here is a little sneak peek at Stampin’ Up’s new 2017/2019 InColors!
- Berry Burst
- Fresh Fig
- Lemon Lime Twist
- Powder Pink
- Tranquil Tide
What do you think? I love them! Well, Lemon Lime Twist is going to have to grow on me a bit. But I am loving the bright color! It has been too long since we had a good one.
So… that is the majority of what I have to share with you today. I have a few more stamp sets that I won at OnStage (See! Good to be a demonstrator!) that I will share with you next week. I will also share my swap items, as well as a few other things from OnStage.
In the meantime, have an amazing weekend and Easter!!!
